    Pretty sure those are classic jetfire accessories. With everything that is missing it doesn't seem worth it to me.

    Actually, Dreadwind came with teal/green missiles. Not gray.

    More on-topic, it's strange to see a more recent BotCon piece so incomplete. Did the original owner not like him THAT much that he just threw him into some random toy chest?

    Apparently, there were "rumours" that circled abit when some guys found Botcon Dreadwinds that came with Blue missiles. Those were quickly being brushed aside as being factory Prototypes. :tongue: 

    But when I see an auction with a piece that is missing one thruster, replaced by 2 pairs of blasters & spotting some Blue missiles...

    *Facepalm!*

    Probably an early sample. We saw a few of these before Botcon 2007.

    Good holy! That piece actually fetched some good USD $70+ greens?? :sly: 

    I'm disturbed...

    It has to cost way MORE than that. :lol
